About the Costume

This costume is unique for several reasons. Firstly, it is a find from an older film. Secondly, it is a costume for a child, which we do not see often. Lastly, it is a male costume. Female costumes are usually much easier to spot, being more distinctive, so this lovely costume is a very nice little find.

Famous costume designer for MGM Walter Plunkett (who designed the costumes for Gone With the Wind) was called upon to create Tudor-inspired costumes for the film Young Bess. This blue ensemble, complete with slashed doublet and breeches, was designed by Plunkett in 1953 for Rex Thompson as Prince Edward VI. In 1956, when Plunkett designed the costumes for the film Diane, he reused some of his creations, including this one, which Ronald Anton wore as Francis.

The costume seems to have gone into the stock at Western Costume Company, as it bears a Western Costume Co. label. The piece faded over the years and eventually was sold at auction in 2011 for $850.
